Named one of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World,” Temple Grandin comes to Congregation Har HaShem on Thursday, October 25th from 5:30-9 pm to keynote the Inclusion of People with Disabilities in our Jewish Community event. Act fast to RSVP though, this event is almost full!
Join us as we start a community discussion about how we as Jews can reach out more to people with disabilities in our community. The event features a keynote speech by Dr. Temple Grandin, whose early life was chronicled in the Emmy-award winning HBO film, “Temple Grandin,” starring Claire Danes. Dr. Grandin is a best-selling author and was named one of Time Magazine’s 2010 “The 100 Most Influential People in the World.”
The event will also include a light dairy dinner from 5:30 to 6:30 pm, a parent panel, a teen discussion, and a presentation by the Jewish Disability Network, which started a pilot inclusion project with two Denver synagogues. There will be a resource fair for families, caregivers and educators, a collaborative art project for all ages and abilities, and a book signing by Dr. Grandin.
Space is limited and early registration is advised. Register HERE. For more information contact Susan Glairon at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.jewishinclusion.org. Childcare will be provided but only by prior request.
